Forum: audio Subject: m4a?

Hi,

I am trying to upload a .m4a file to the archive.org site. This file was created from Garageband '09 and is intended to be a enhanced podcast. However, each time I try to upload, it won't work, I can't explain. Here's a link to one of my tries of uploading the podcast: http://ia301503.us.archive.org/1/items/DJimmehDJimmix05_2009/DJimmix052009Final.m4a
Safari and Firefox just slow down real badly, but they won't read the file. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks,

Pilopew

maybe the problem is that m4a files cannot be streamed by browser's quicktime plugin. quickitme tries to download the whole file and it slows down your browser.
